GEOG 276 - Economic Geography: Spaces of Global Capitalism

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as INTL 276 ) This course analyzes the shifting economic landscape of globalization. It covers classic location theories in economic geography, but also the recent trends of industrial reorganization in agriculture, manufacturing and services. Two areas of focus in this course are the globalization of the world economy and regional development under the first and third world contexts. We analyze the emergence of the global capitalist system, the commodification of nature, the transformation of agriculture, the global spread of manufacturing and the rise of flexible production systems, and restructuring of transnational corporations and its regional impacts. Yu Zhou.

Two 75-minute periods.
